About Vibrant City

Adelaide is considered to be one of the most liveable cities on the planet. It is well known for its arts festivals, fine foods and wine. Our city has an advanced economy, world class universities and a flourishing multicultural heritage.

Adelaide shares many qualities with the greatest cities in the world, and we are receiving recognition for the innovative ways we’re bringing fresh energy and life to our city.

The Vibrant City program is geared toward creating a city where more people want to live, work and spend time because there is always something to do.

The program is achieving this by improving and maximising opportunities for the following groups.

We want everyone

Project progress

The Vibrant City program started in 2012 and is gaining real momentum in revitalising Adelaide.

We are seeing increases in people living, working, spending time and investing in our city.

We are also witnessing greater confidence in our entrepreneurs to start up and carry out business in our CBD.
